Shuffle up & deal, Pirates!

Get ready for the Pirate Club's "A Night in G-Vegas" event that will serve as a fundraiser for the 2009 scholarship fund. I can't think of a better way to bring in a lot of money for the 2009 scholarship fund and also give the Pirate fans an opportunity to meet and greet and gamble (fake money of course). Dinner and drinks will be included and you will have the chance to win a bunch of great prizes like beach vacations and off-shore fishing trips. Read the post to find out more about the prizes, the food, the celebrity dealers and much, much more.

UNC Basketball Jumps the Shark…

Apparently, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's basketball program is starting early after initiating its new fetal recruitment policy which will begin trying to get commitments from the fetuses during the second trimester.
